Joel Lion an Israeli senior diplomat in Ukraine faced an attack of anti-Semitic abuse and calls for protests outside his country’s embassy after he condemned a march to remember a Nazi collaborator in the Ukrainian capital.

Israel’s ambassador to Ukraine, tweeted his concern over a thousand-strong march in Kiev, honoring the 112th anniversary of the birth of nationalist leader Stepan Bandera.

“We strongly condemn any glorification of collaborators with the Nazi regime,” Lion said. “It is time for Ukraine to come to terms with its past.”

However, the Israeli ambassador interference has attracted criticism from Ukrainians with social media users accusing the diplomat of being “a disgrace to the Jewish people” and asking him to “stay out of our Ukrainian heroes.”

OUN leaders Andriy Melnyk and Stepan Bandera were recruited before World War II into the Nazi Germany military intelligence Abwehr for espionage, counter-espionage, and sabotage.

Their goal was to run diversion activities after Germany’s attack on the Soviet Union. Melnyk was given the code name ‘Consul I’. This information is part of the testimony that Abwehr Colonel Erwin Stolze gave on 25 December 1945 and submitted to the Nuremberg trials, with a request to be admitted as evidence. as Wikipedia notes
